Can't edit directly from Fetch & icons missing (4 posts)

    I used to be able to edit a file directly from my FTP site, but now I get this error:

    "Fetch could not edit <my filename> because the disk has been ejected or disconnected.

    Try saving to a different disk."

    Also, the icons that represent folders and files are missing.

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Tony

    Hi Tony,

    That's rather unusual and rare behavior for Fetch.

    Have you restarted your Macintosh since the problems started? That would be the first thing I would try, and see if it fixes the problem; this sounds like the sort of problem restarting your Mac might fix.

    If that does not help, could you please tell us which version of Fetch you are using, and which version of Mac OS X?

    Thanks,

    I am using Fetch 5.3 and OS X 10.5.3.

    I am not sure if there is a permissions problem or not, as I am having problems creating a new Excel file as well. I can open an Excel file, but I can't create a new one.

    Thanks,

    Tony

    Hi Tony,

    I'm afraid it sounds like you need to run Disk First Aid on your hard disk to check for problems. The "could not edit because the disk has been ejected" error really should not be showing up under any normal circumstances, and the fact that you are having trouble using Excel also indicates that the problems probably lie outside of both Fetch and Excel.

    So I recommend you start your Mac up with the CD/DVD that came with it (or your Mac OS X 10.5 CD/DVD install disk if you purchased a 10.5 upgrade separately), and run Disk First Aid and let it try to repair any problems it finds. There should be instructions about doing this in your Mac's manual.

    Thanks,
